Case of the Munchies

Tate recently discovered that he could open the pantry and he is loving it! This kid never stops eating. Donny and I were laughing today talking about letting Tate eat all day long, just to see if he could do it. He is a bottomless pit! The cereal and tortilla chips are on the bottom shelf and that is his favorite thing.

Isn't he just too cute?! Oh man I love him in this hat! He loves wearing this one. It is powered by awesomeness after all. He likes to put it on himself and it is usually on sideways.

All about the guys

Last week was Donny's spring break so he got to spend some much needed time with his miniature. Tate was loving all the guy time. They went to the sporting goods store and got a basketball and and little soccer ball. Tate refers to them as Daddy's ball and Tate's ball. They have been going over to the sports court everyday. Tate got really upset when Donny went once without him.

We found this little tent at goodwill, new for 5 bucks and Tate has had so much fun with it. It's his reading hut and also his soccer goal.

They were so cute taking their Sunday afternoon nap together in their Sunday best. My guys are so cute when they are asleep!!!

How else can you finish off a manly week but with a mustache....the way he says mustache is so cute.

Here's to awesome Dads! Donny is such a great Dad. Tate loves him so much and Donny can't get enough of that little guy. Now that Donny is back in school this week Tate has been moping around the house and every time he hears the hallway door he runs to the door yelling Daddy Daddy.....and then comes walking back with his head hung. So sad! Love my boys!

What do you do when you crave favorite food spots that just aren't available to you? Well around here we just make it ourselves! We have been having so much fun lately making some of our favorite things to eat out, at home.

For Donny's birthday this year he had his parents send us J Dawgs special sauce. We can't seem to get enough of these hot dogs! Seriously this sauce could make anything taste amazing! The first night we made them...... let's just say we ate 6 hot dogs between the three of us! Everyday when I'm making lunch for me and Tate the thought of "hummm maybe I'll have a hot dog" crosses my mind. Can't get enough.

Ellery emailed the recipe for Maglebys chocolate cake, so of course we had to try it. Yikes it is so good. I mean anything with 4 cubes of butter and 5 cups of sugar would be right? Donny loves it. He hardly wants to share, and I can get Tate to do anything if I bribe him with a bite. YUM!!!

We also have been eating quite a bit of BBQ chicken pizza, CPK style. WOW! So good! I think maybe I shouldn't blog while being hungry! All I can think about is eating good food. Happy Eating Everyone!

Spring

Spring break is finally here! Yay! Although we aren't going anywhere and Donny still has lots of work to do during his break, it's still spring break. We are planning on doing a few fun things here and there. So maybe I'll have something interesting to blog about. It has been a bit mundane around here as of late. We are seeing some warmer weather on the horizon so we might get to get out a little bit and enjoy the outdoors as well.

Spring break also means we are halfway through the semester! We are starting to see the light at the end of the education tunnel. We thought it would never be in sight, but here we are in Donny's last semester of classes. Although we still have a dissertation to tackle...one hurdle at a time. I think I'm going to love spring this year!

I found a goody from last spring that I wanted to share. It's amazing how fast babies change when life is just speeding by. We went to the park today and we were laughing how it wasn't long ago that Tate couldn't even climb onto the first little step (and more often than not fall off it) and now he is all over everything and running and jumping. Life just zooms on by doesn't it?

Video Dump

These videos have been burning a hole in my pocket for the last few weeks. I wasn't sure how best to weave them into my blog posts, so I thought I would just throw them all on here at once. Enjoy!

That snap sound is the table breaking from the fall. We thought it was so funny.

We hope you liked these videos. We think Tate is hilarious, we hope you do too, and these videos didn't bore you.
